Fuzzy Boa Scarf


A few years ago I wrote a post called The Song of a Scarf in which I showed how I spun, dyed, and knit a scarf from beginning to end. It included a pattern for a simple bias scarf. That Christmas, I made a variation of that scarf as Christmas gifts for my girls' dance teachers. Rather than using natural, homespun wool, I used super fun fur yarns held together with a basic worsted weight yarn. They turned out to be fun, silly, feather boa styled scarves.

Last week, our dance studio owner came to me asking for help. One of the young dancers was performing a solo in which she uses a feather boa as a prop but the teacher didn't want to use an actual feather boa since they shed feathers like crazy and are hard to quickly untie in the middle of a performance. She brought out one of the scarves that I had made for one of the other teachers (not realizing that I had been the one to make it in the first place). She told me that they had been using the fuzzy scarf for practice and...Read more

Paper Star Lantern

This time of year, when there are far more hours of darkness than light, I think we are all drawn to the warm, comforting glow of candles and twinkle lights. Last week I shared a series of lanterns and lights on Facebook with the intent of making several of the projects myself. The kids and I started with the Paper Star Lanterns. The kids aren't quite finished with theirs yet. They all managed to get to the folded pentagon stage on their own but are now awaiting my help in the assembly process.

It is a relatively easy project in terms of materials and time. The only tricky part is the assembly. Here is a quick run down of the process but for complete directions I will refer you to the site that I used and point out that using a pencil for the lines was not a great idea. You can see the lines through the paper... a light colored marker would have been better.

To see the complete step-by-step tutorial that I followed, visit Happiness is Homemade.
